DANNY D., Amazon

  • Summary: The camera quality is what you would expect for the price. If you are planning to use Android or Windows, their software is ok (take note, OK, not good). If you will use this using MAC/APPLE, their software (D-Link) is NOT user-friendly. If you will use this on IPhone, Ipod or Ipad, think before you buy and look at the Apple App Store reviews for the app.

Yada Yada Yada

  • Summary: Good picture, but same issues as all the other models, proprietary software and you have to username and password every camera whcih is a pain in the neck. It's a shame they didnt' make a good software package because they would have the best line available for home consumers. They are as close to plug and play as you can get, but the software ruins all that joy.

I thought the setup was going to be easy.

JACOB HARTLE, Amazon
24 March 2014
  • Summary: This camera seemed promising at first. I went through all the steps that the setup wizard said. For the life of me it would not connect to the dlink site for me to make an account. Turns out I had to log in to my router and set up port forwarding for the camera to connect to the site so I could set up an account. I am not very computer savy, so it took me forever to just figure out how the heck to Port Forward something.

It works, but took buggy setup and narrow view angle

gadget guru, Amazon
20 December 2013
  • Summary: I was looking for a wireless camera to monitor my front door, which is well sheltered from the elements. I wanted something simple that didn't need constant access to a hard drive for recording so I liked the thought of it recording to the onboard micro SD card. PROS: 1. Good image quality (although brightness and contrast had to be adjusted. 2. Can easily view from my phone via free mydLink app. 3. Can view from any computer on mydLink web site. 4.

Mac Users Be Forewarned

MG, Amazon
27 August 2013
  • Summary: These appear to be reasonable cameras with fairly good resolution given the low cost. The mydlink system is, however, a complete nightmare for Mac users. There is very sketchy advice and troubleshooting for Macs and the Java runtime environment repeatedly fails making it impossible to see what your camera records. Add to that a pretty shoddy iPhone app and you have a nice camera recording footage you cannot see.

Bad customer support

Jeremy Yablan, Amazon
21 August 2013
  • Summary: Motion detection didn't work. It never saw real motion, but when nothing was moving it sent emails. Maybe it's a ghost detection device? I contacted customer support and they ignored me. No response. Ever. At least I have a ticket number! You know what they can do with that...
